Mentoring Next Generation Women: Re-igniting Intergenerational Relationships

October 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - October 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

Mentoring Next Generation Women: Re-igniting Intergenerational Relationships

October 26 – November 1, 2022     Kansas City, MO at Avant Ministries      

Registration Closed: FULL – Check back in 2023!

hosted by: Avant Ministries in Kansas City, MO
facilitated by: Wendy Wilson (WDT/Missio Nexus) and Jenny Baker (SEND)

Invest in a week of personal refreshment and ministry renewal in a beautiful setting with like-minded peers! Limited places available – first come, first serve. . .

This development experience will help you build confidence and skills around clarity in reaching toward other-generational women as mentors or mentees, and strengthen your ability to step into the opportunities God is putting before you!  Invest now in a relational learning experience with peers, in a lovely setting for renewal and growth!  Learning is done in interactive peer-groups, guided by experienced mentors, with a maximum of 12 women in each group. First come, first serve! 

(Other Module groups also meeting during this week:  Discovering My Design and Personal Mission – see Module Descriptions for more information.)

Designed by Dr Barbara Neumann, Dallas Seminary.   Do you feel a bit intimidated, frustrated, or just baffled in relationships with women around you who were raised in a different generational culture? Jesus set in motion the essential Christian tradition of disciplepship – passing on vibrant faith relationally, from one generation to the next. Young women today clamor for mentors/disciplers who will accept and guide them, but too often the older women that have so much to offer them wrestle with a lack of confidence. How can we build bridges of understanding and connection between generations so that we preserve the rich resource of women-to-women relationships as we move toward each other? We’ll consider influential distinctives of the Boomer to Millennial generations and explore encouraging pathways between them. We’ll explore generational values and perspectives on key issues such as God, spirituality, church, relationships, commitment, sexuality and morality, fears and hopes, the impact of technology and globalization. And we’ll explore the roles and desires of both mentors and mentees, discerning needs and commonalities, types of mentoring relationships, common mentoring mistakes, and how to create the nourishing relationships that busy women want to make time for! Some advance preparation.
